  • The first indication I had of Lila Mae was in a genealogy with very little information and no documentation.  But the details of the information they had indicated they were presenting family information.

    Woodrow Green
    Birth 12/13/1916 in Marietta, Oklahoma
    Death 12/17/1968 in Las Vegas, New Mexico
    Father William Green, Mother Unknown
    Spouse Lila Mae Lee Vinson
    Birth 21 May 1923 in Marietta, Oklahoma

    This basic information on Lila led to another genealogy with information on her parents.  This genealogy, along with several others lacking documentation, have her name as Lila Mae Lee Vinson.  THe name Lee does show up in her Social Security records, in a name change reported in December 1961 to Lila Mae Lee, indicating a second married name.  Her first husband Woodrow Green did not die until 1968, so this must mean that Lila and Woodrow divorced some time before December 1961.

    "Hi, my name is Destini McAlister (that is my married last name).  I am the grandaughter of Peggy Green, grandaughter [daughter] of Lila Mae Lee Vinson.  I am 34 years old from Edmond, Ok.  I was adopted but know who my birth family is.  The Greens are from my mother's side of my family.. ... I know my maternal great grandparents are Woodrow Green and Lila Mae."

    Lila Mae's Social Security record shows that in 1961, Lila Mae married someone named Lee.  But Woodrow did not died until 1968, so they must have divorced.  Or Social Security has confused two different records for two similar persons.  Social Security records report she also married someone named Dawson in about October 1971.
